Great to have the star loop open. Surprised how many people were out at 6:30. Nice 1.6k circuit (doing both loops).

Ran over to Hyland this afternoon. The Piston Bulley had been out pushing snow around, so I'm hoping that they might try to have the Star loop and the first hill ready to go by Saturday, but that is just a guess.

Decided to hike Hyland this afternoon. The crew was out setting up the guns. I have faith we'll have skiing soon on the Southside.

Ran some of the 5k loop (Frogtown and north) in 50° temps. Snowmaking machines are set up south of Frogtown. While limited, park staff have made some snow. Fingers crossed for freezing temperatures.

Observation 
Went pole walking on Nordic trails, and noticed that the sign advertising the Nordic Ski Opener for Dec 6th was taken down (an omen?). Very little snow made on Nordic trails, but not the case on alpine trails: they were open, with lots of skiers.
